CradlePoint MBR1400 V2 3G/4G Router w/ WiFi as WAN

We purchased this on an 'emergency' basis, when the 3G node on the only cell tower in town went down and our old product (MBR1000) would not support 4G. It was truly 'plug it in and it works'. However, I'm still tweaking various settings so we get better performance out of it. I must say that the documentation for this model is INFINITELY better than for the old MBR1000. I'm sort of technical, but I really don't know the ins and outs of networking, and the documentation does a fairly good job of explaining what the various settings do and what they are for. The GUI interface is much different than the MBR1000, and I still have trouble finding what I"m trying to find... it doesn't seem as intuitive as the old interface, but perhaps it's just what I got used to. I really like the fact that it has holes in the back to mount on the wall. I guess our old one did, too, but we never noticed them. The documentation for this model actually shows the best positioning for wall mounted, and that will be the next thing we do after deciding the best location. We live in a log home, and signals don't pass through logs very well. My husband's office is in the basement, and got very poor signal from the MBR1000. He gets a much, much better signal from this one. I haven't found the 'failover' setting yet (well, I found it once, but didn't know what it was for, and now that I've read about it in the manual, I can't find it again), so I've had to manually reboot it a couple of times when the cell signal was lost. I've had some difficulty with the aircard not making super good contact. I'm not sure if that's because of wear on the air card, or it's just not a good fit. I have to move the aircard around a little bit in the port in order for it to make good contact. Overall, I'm extremely pleased.
